4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Gotta love the homage. This one comes out of the tap a dark, reddish amber bordering on mahogany with a thick, fine-bubbled, light tan head. Strong, malty aroma has an overtone of clove and earthy and woody hints. Scrumptious, delightful flavor is more complex than most ales I have sampled - malty and slightly woody core supports clove, hoppy, nutty and earthy tones. This is an ale to be sipped and savored for its own sake, not chugged during a game! Firm texture is quite lively with a fairly sturdy fizz, leaving sweet malty, earthy and hoppy touches. One of the best ales I have ever enjoyed, maybe even the best!

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: Deep amber-hued body with a slim, ivory-hued head.
Smell: Resiny, woodsy hops with some light citrus rind notes over malty accents of toast and caramel with a distant note of roast.
Taste: Toasted malts with an easy roastiness in the background and a sweetness of brown sugar and caramel. Resiny, woodsy, citrusy hops but theyíre restrained, particularly the bitterness, which remains light. Malty finish with a final taste of toasted bread and still a fair amount of sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Slackened hop bitterness with a nice round maltiness -- I liked it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler from Ale Yeah. Characteristic amber color and pretty nutty caramel and bread flavor make this a little more syrupy and full bodied but I definitely dig that aspect. Toasty grain aroma with some grassiness mixed in from the hops. Caramel sweetness and nutty almond flavors come pretty quick and strong upon first sip and the sweetness stays with you for a while. Getting a faint light cocoa flavor towards the end of the sip and on the back of the palate. A bit more entertaining than your average amber and definitely worth the time.

Draft at Brewpub. Amber pour with a white head. Toffee and toasted bread aroma with spicy and piney hops. Toffee and caramel malts up front with a big bitter spicy and piney hop end. Pretty good with an unexpected ending.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pours clear reddish amber with a medium beige head; creamy with great lacing. Aroma is caramel and faint pine. Flavor is the same, quite malty body with a faint bitter citrus finish. Full bodied and creamy. Not bad, but I wish it had the aroma in the description.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear deep amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and caramel with only a hint of earthy hops. Flavor has a nice citrus note with a bit of flora that finishes with caramel and earthy grain.

Amber pour with creamy tan head and lace. Caramel malt, resiny, and some almost chocolate tones. Sweet caramel, resiny hops, and again what I take as light chocolate. Smooth with good carbonation. Nice beer.

Very good taste with a nice hop tingle, though the beer is weakened by its somewhat watery body.
